Yama Rising


Links are NOT allowed. Format your description nicely so people can easily read them. Please use proper spacing and paragraphs.

The youthful Qin Ye was born almost a century ago, but thanks to immortality granted to him by the ‘fungus of aeons’ he can pass for a high schooler. He planned to live an eternal, reclusive life as a happy otaku, enjoying World of Warcraft and his favorite MOBA games, but Fate had other plans in store. Hell has broken down, and vengeful revenants stalk the mortal realms. With ghosts running amock throughout all of Cathay, Qin Ye must reluctantly adopt the mantle of ‘hero’ and bring peace to both the living and the dead, while rebuilding Hell. But this, of course, isn’t something a mere Netherworld Operative can do. For that, he’ll need to become more.

King Yama is dead. Long live King Yama!

Chapter 41 Review
I like this a lot! The worldbuilding is interesting, and I like how the author started the story. It's a rather fresh start. That said, it can be a little confusing at times. The novel's certainly got its own feeling though.

I like how the MC even acknowledges that he has different parts of himself. The MC's a pretty good one, I think. Not s*upid, but also has guts despite being very pragmatic. Also, great character development!

Overall, a very interesting and good start and a great world to... more>> explore.

EDIT: Chapter 366

Wow, this is absolutely underrated. This novel is definitely one of the best on WW right now.
*cough* At least in my opinion.

Sure there are small flaws, but the author's worldbuilding and attention to detail is incredible. The world's really unique. As the story progresses, we learn more and more about the world and the MC.

The MC's a complex character. He can be a bit cowardly at times, but deservedly since he's the underdog. If you ever get annoyed at how lame the MC is, just wait for character development. Sure, we get to learn more about MC's past and that lets us know more about him, but there is character development happening in the novel's present. Good character development.

The characters in the novel are great! Sure, you might be annoyed by some of them, but.... really in the important moments they come through. The author isn't afraid to kill off some people too; I cried when someone died. Also, the non-Chinese characters aren't disrespected that much. The author butchers some languages, I think, but nothing has been overtly racist.

Romance is hinted? But it's too early to tell if there's going to be anything.

Overall, 360 chapters might not seem that much, but the content conveyed in these chapter makes it feel like I've read 500 chapters. I really like this novel because it's unpredictable. The MC's strengths are slowly revealed, and the hype moments are really epic. The slow-build up to the explosion... noice. This novel is also pretty varied. It doesn't make you feel bored because there's something unexpected and interesting that pops up.

If you like worldbuilding/kingdom building and complex set of characters, try it! Also, the horror aspect isn't always present, so don't feel too scared if you're bad with horror (like me). There is quite a bit of killing though... :D <<less

A really good novel that successfully combines its horror elements with its cultivation aspects. The author is clearly ambitious when he planned the story as you can see the grand scale of the world and its plot.

The novel is unpredictable and the author doesn’t shy on the idea of killing off the characters that appear in the novel. Characters are not some arrogant young masters whose sole purpose is to piss off MC. Here we have genuine characters with their own goals and ambitions. They are not s*upid and can... more>> see the gist of things.

Author also references lots of famous games, anime and some movies in the novel. Translation quality is assured as it is translated by WuxiaWorld and most translators there really studies the novel and its references and explain it to us in their notes.

MC is not over powered. Here we have an MC that uses his brain and clearly knows his limits. Just by reading the novel, you get the sense of how hard the MC’s mission is and cant help but wonder just how on earth is he even going to accomplish that.

Overall the potential of the novel is really great and hope that the author would be able to pull off his ambition for this novel! <<less

The world building is excellent
Comedy is gold.
You either hate or like the character of the MC. Personally, I love him. He's refreshing compared to the standard "hardworking" 2D CN MC

Character development is gradual and it takes time for the MC to accept his role. I fully understand given the difficulty of the task...

The MC isn't a coward but pragmatic. He lived for a long time so if you wanna read about a hot blooded protagonist who face slap everyone, go check elsewhere.

Anyway, the only... more>> complaint I have is how there is a little bit of nationalism even in hell lmao

Like Cathay's (aka China) hell is the best underworld in the world

On what basis? Because they have the biggest population? What about India...

Anyway I don't see any good reason.


the MC thinks that emissaries of hell of other countries trying to steal talents from Cathay's underworld deserve death but I honestly don't think he would be against stealing THEIR talents for his hell
